Mother's Day 2009

Shirl knows how to help a guy get started off in life, here is her card (above front)











This is the inside, some of the best advice a senior can give to someone just starting.......





This is Josh and Britney his fiance. Marriage is planned next Jun/July. they have been going together since High School.



Steve and his new friend Kelly, she is from Florida. This was our first time meeting Kelly, seems like a sweet lady. She would have to be for MY (OUR) grandson to be paying that much attention.




Did I break the rules? Steve in on the left and Josh on the right (I'll have to look back and check.) The guy in the middle is the proud papa, Jack our oldest son.




Well some of our schedule is behind us. We have two presentations for Seniors One Tuesday night and one two weeks later. Our article was not in the paper this week, of course we are anxious for it to appear.
As I promised above is a picture of the twins now. And yes, we are very proud of them.



EXCEPT we now have engineers and not trains. I was surprised that Josh doesn’t have a train. He tried to explain that all engineers do not have a train to drive. I am disappointed in that. I have never taken a real long train ride; I just knew this was my chance. LOL.


Today was a special day. MOTHER’S DAY. Mark the youngest son, was at the beach. But promised to take his mother out when he got back. Jack surprised his mother by coming to church to be with her, then taking us out to eat at the Texas Road house. When we got there, there was a long line. Jack said to us wait here. In a few minutes he came out and said Mother your able is ready. We walked right past everyone to the table. We did not ask how he did it.



He did say he walked up to the MaĆ®tre de and said, “Darnell, ready for the table for three.” (or something like that, he had no reservations, they do not take reservations on Sunday.)


We had a great meal and a good time visiting with Jack. It was a good Mother’s Day for Sherry, She deserves it, she is and has been a wonderful mama!


Happy Mother’s day to all you ladies out there, hope you had a wonderful day.
Thanks for coming this way,

Cute Card. Great pictures. Great deal on Mark and the table LOL.

Jack that was really the purpose of leaving the white rose up through Mother's Day on my blog, in memory of my Mother. She has been gone since 1995 from Cancer. I bet you were the only one who thought of what the white rose meant. I have it on my computer as a background right now also. I change my backgrounds as much as the top picture in my blog LOL
Thanks for your comment.
